the simple things, for haiti...

there. 600 miles southeast of Florida lies
homeless, injured, and lost souls aplenty. but
even when the earth quakes, we shall not be broken.

situation in haiti worsens as i type.
imagine. the seasonal rains are looming from above.
mass graves overflow with unidentified loved ones.
people buried in the rubble, still unrecovered.
Lord. others yearn for those they will never find.
every second. every minute. every day.

there go i, but for the grace of JAH
hold on, brothers and sisters. help is on the way.
in times of trouble, HE shall set thee upon a rock.
never lose strength. l'union fait la force.
guide and protect my people, oh JAH JAH.
shower them with your love and grace. i pray.

*the Enchanted Oak will donate $2 to earthquake relief in Haiti for each person who posts *the simple things for haiti*. give thanks to Empress Christina of Soul Aperture for her permission to use this idea to help our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

*you can also text "YELE" to 501501 to donate to $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund. one love.

*Wyclef Jean & Mavado: Hold On.

Se'lah, thank you for this post, beautiful one again. I'm so happy I did stop by here. I was absent from the computer when Christina made her 'simple things' and I was sad that I could not participate. So imagine my joy when I read about Enchanted Oak ... thank you! Stand strong Haiti, we all pray for you!
